had some impact on both the legal movie genre and society's view of women as criminals. I could have chosen any one of a half-dozen adaptations, I opted for the Oscar-winning one. While, very weak on criteria #3) legal precedent (threshold Supreme Court ruling, a first or some type of record and borderline on #4) societal significance (threshold changed course of history, world or society) It is near the top position on criteria #1) widely seen movie (threshold 50,000+ IMDb votes) and criteria #2) famous trial or case (threshold commonly known to general public) is enough to counter-balance and make it into the answer pool. Please, note I am not including an O.J. Simpson trial movie, the Prosecuting Casey Anthony (TV Movie 2013), or any other purely sensational&nbsp; legal movie that doesn't make a case across-the-board.<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />3) <a alt="" href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102138/" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="" type="" value="">JFK (1991)</a> makes a similar case with a weakness in #3) legal precedent (threshold Supreme Court ruling, a first or some type of record. But, it is near the top position on criteria #1) widely seen movie (threshold 50,000+ IMDb votes) and criteria #2) famous trial or case (threshold commonly known to general public) is enough to counter-balance and make it into the answer pool. It is even stronger in #4) societal significance (threshold changed course of history, world or society). I can't think of another movie that created as much publicity before or after it was released. Likewise, I can't think of one that forced Congress to hold hearings, let alone pass a law. <a alt="" href="https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/10/26/16536122/oliver-stone-jfk-assassination-trump" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="" type="" value="">How a 1991 movie resulted in JFK's assassination files being released.</a> Plus, The actual prosecution by Jim Garrison of Clay Shaw was the most vocal voice at the time (newspaper headlines, news broadcasts) and documents a historical significant real-life event of even more famous assassination. <br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />I feel all are worthy or worthy enough to be included in the answer pool, while they like just every other answer option have some flaws.

The case&nbsp;of Abraham Lincoln's assassination resulted in the death penalty for&nbsp;Mary Surratt ("female conspirator"), she was hanged to death. Later her son stood under legal procedure in the same case based on the same evidence, and he survived but was blamed more guilty than his dead mother. (It is one and the same case, but it would be really boring to show the whole son's part in the movie.) Finally, the death penalty of Mary Surratt was treated as baseless and&nbsp;excessive.&nbsp;It's a horrible mistake to consider the case had no effect! The Surratt precedent was the base for breakthrough in justice to its modern form as we know it (not only in USA).
